Lucky 63 Bet Calculator Explained

Punters these days have a lot of options when it comes to how they want to place their wagers, some of which can get quite complicated. A Lucky 63 is one of these. The question of how to calculate a Lucky 63 bet is not easy to answer – which is why Betting Fellow has created this handy Lucky 63 bet calculator.

This page will also go into the ins and out’s of how a Lucky 63 bet works and how to use it. As a starting point, we also recommend checking out our bet calculator page to get a clear picture of what we’re trying to do here.

What is a Lucky 63 Bet?

You won’t get far with the calculator without understanding how Lucky 63 bets work in the first place, so let’s get that out of the way.

A Lucky 63 is a full-coverage combination bet that uses six selections. On a surface level, this makes it very similar to a Heinz, with one important difference – A Lucky 63 also includes singles among their covered bets.

Essentially, a Lucky 63 takes these selections and rolls them up into every possible accumulator one can get from them, and also places them as singles. This means that a Lucky 63 consists of 63 separate bets, which is where the name comes from. If we were to name these selections A, B, C, D, E, and F, a Lucky 63 would consist of the following bets:

6 singles: A, B, C, D, E, and F.

15 doubles: AB, AC, AD, AE, AF, BC, BD, BE, BF, CD, CE, CF, DE, DF, and EF.

20 trebles: ABC, ABD, ABE, ABF, ACD, ACE, ACF, ADE, ADF, AEF, BCD, BCE, BCF, BDE, BDF, BEF, CDE, CDF, CEF, DEF.

15 four-fold accumulators: ABCD, ABCE, ABCF, ABDE, ABDF, ABEF, ACDE, ACDF, ACEF. ADEF, BCDE, BCDF, BCEF, BDEF, and CDEF.

6 five-fold accumulators: ABCDE, ABCDF, ABCEF, ABDEF, ACDEF, BCDEF.

1 six-fold accumulator: ABCDEF.

That’s quite a lot of bets, and quite a lot of variables to consider. A Lucky 63 is by no means a simple bet to wrap your head around, and we wouldn’t recommend it to beginners. However, if you learn to properly recognize good Lucky 64 opportunities, it can be a great option to add to your toolbelt.

Why Use a Lucky 63 Bet?

Which brings us to our next question – what are the advantages of Lucky 63 bets? How to know when to use a Lucky 63, and when simpler bets are a better option?

The main point of all full-coverage combination bets is to get as much profit as possible from a relatively small number of selections. Six might not seem like that small at first glance, especially if you're using accumulators as a point of reference. However, considering just how far a Lucky 63 goes towards managing risks, you shouldn't treat it like a common Acca. You should never lose sight of the fact that we’re talking about 63 separate bets.

This fact has its pros and cons, as always. Spreading your stake in so many directions makes sure that losing it entirely is very unlikely. Also, if you're familiar with the law of averages, you'll know that a large number of different bets means that statistical probability starts mattering more.

Look at it this way: with a single bet, there’s always a chance that a surprise outcome will come true as a fluke. However, six flukes in a row are extremely unlikely. This means that implied probabilities become more reliable over a larger number of predictions. As we all know, smart bets should largely be made based on statistics and data, which makes Lucky 63 predictions more reliable on average.

This stake spreading, however, is also the cause of the biggest downside to Lucky 63 bets, and that's the bankroll required to make a Lucky 63. There is a limit to how small your stake can get to stay relevant, and your budget can only be stretched up to a certain point. That's why Lucky 63's are not something you should place just any day and need to be carefully planned out. No matter how you look at it, a Lucky 63 requires a significant investment.

Furthermore, for a Lucky 63's risk management to work, you need all your selections to be at odds of 2.00 or more. That's a 50% implied probability per selection at best, which is not exactly considered "safe".

Another big plus for Lucky 63 is that like any combination bet with the word “Lucky”, it’s a common target of special bonuses. Top online bookmakers often provide Lucky 63 betting promotions that can substantially increase your winnings. For example, a 25% bonus for all-winners Lucky 63s is quite common, as well as a double-odds consolation prize in case only one of your selections is successful.

How To Use the Lucky 63 Bet Calculator

Lucky 63 bets have a lot of moving parts, which means that their success is not limited to a binary win or lose. There are degrees of success here, depending on how many of the initial selections were successful.

If you add the fact that all of them have different odds on top of that, you end up with dozens of possible outcomes, especially if we’re talking in terms of potential profits. That’s why bet calculators are such a handy tool. They allow you to figure out exactly how much you’ll be getting in each possible scenario.

To use Betting Fellow’s Lucky 63 bet calculation app, start by setting its parameters any way you like. You should first specify if the bet in question is each-way or not, and select whichever odds format you prefer: fractional, decimal, or US Moneyline.

After that, you’ll need to decide on your stake. Remember, your stake is usually counted on a per-bet basis. This means that the amount will be wagered 63 times. Of course, if you would instead like to just provide your full budget, the calculator can do that as well.

The next step is to provide the odds for all six of your selections. Just remember to use the format you selected. After that, it’s only a matter of marking the selections as wins or losses.

There are some additional options here, but they are mostly only of concern to horse racing bets. For instance, ‘dead heat’ and ‘non-runner’ can also be selected as your selections’ results, and Rule 4 can be applied to modify odds.

Lucky 63 Example

Adding singles on top of a Heinz bet’s already extensive array of bets only serves to complicate things further. However, the differences between the two can probably be easily spotted if you compare the possible results of a Heinz to the results of a Lucky 63. To illustrate this point clearly, we'll be using the same selections as we did with our Heinz bet example.

To reiterate, these were not picked because they necessarily make a good Lucky 63. The selections were based on their simple, round odds. That’s one of the reasons we’re using a football Lucky 63 bet instead of horse racing, which is arguably more closely connected to full-coverage combination bets.

So, the selections are as follows:

Selection 1: a Scottish Premiership game between St. Mirren and Heart of Midlothian. We’re betting on the Hearts at odds of 2.40.

Selection 2: Dutch Eredivisie match between RKC Waalwijk and Sparta Rotterdam. Our bet is an Away Win at odds of 2.30.

Selection 3: UEFA Champions League game of Real Madrid vs. Manchester City. Our bet is on Real Madrid at odds of 2.50.

Selection 4: another Champions League match between Napoli and Barcelona. We’re going for an Away Win at odds of 2.20.

Selection 5: English Premier League match, Arsenal vs. Everton. Home win at the odds of 2.00.

Selection 6: another Premier League, this time it’s Tottenham vs. Wolverhampton. We’re picking a Home Win at odds of 2.20.

Again, much like in our Heinz example, we’ll go for a stake of £1 per bet for the sake of simplicity. The total combined stake has to be a bit higher to account for the singles, bringing it to a total of £63. Now, we’ll go through all the possible outcomes from best to worst. Remember to compare them to those of a Heinz to fully understand all the nuances.

If all 6 selections win, the total return is £1205.37. As you can see, that’s not much higher than a Heinz, so the value of such a bet is questionable. However, if your bookie offers a Lucky 63 all-winners bonus, these winnings can go up to £1506.72.

If 5 out of 6 selections win, your bet is still fairly strong with returns ranging from £343.68 to £401.12. In this case, the singles have contributed quite a nice bonus. With 4 winners, returns range from £100.38 to £124.66, depending on the selections in question.

If half of your selections win, your returns will be somewhere between £29.72 and £38.27. These last two possibilities are the breaking point where it becomes questionable whether the singles are worth it. 2 winning selections will net you a small consolation prize ranging between £8.60 vs£10.90. At these losing scenarios, the singles are more of a liability.

And finally, just one of the singles winning will bring in a total return of between £2.00 and £2.50. These odds are often doubled by bookies, but that doesn't help in the grand scheme of things.

Lucky 63 FAQs

Are Lucky 63 bets worth it?

The answer to this depends largely on the context. A bet of this size and complexity can never be a good option unless you’re willing to risk a sizable stake in the first place. Furthermore, you need to adhere to the general rule of all full-coverage combination bets: the odds on all selections must be longer than 2.00.

If you’re okay with all of the above, the only question that remains to be answered is whether you should use Lucky 63 or Heinz bets. They both require the same number of selections and comparative budgets. So which to use, and why?

To get the best picture, we recommend examining and comparing our Lucky 63 example to our Heinz bet example. Generally speaking, the increased stake is rarely worth the increase in returns. As such, Lucky 63 should be used in one of two cases:

You are confident that at least 5 of your selections will win. Realistically, however, there is a limit to how confident you can be about wagers with 2.00+ odds.

The sportsbook you’re using is offering an attractive bonus for Lucky 63. This is not all that uncommon but remember: in most cases, you’ll still need all 6 selections to take advantage of these promotions. No matter how you look at it, this outcome statistically highly improbable.

Is Lucky 63 a good bet?

Put bluntly: Lucky 63 bets are rarely good. See the previous question and the examples provided in this Lucky 63 betting guide for more details.

How good are Lucky 63 odds?

The good part about full-coverage combination bets is hat they avoid some of the pitfalls of regular accumulators. Accumulators are notorious for not providing the best value in terms of odds versus actual probability. That is still felt with a Lucky 63, particularly for the larger five- and six-fold Accas, but the effects are somewhat negated because the stake is spread as wide as it is.
